Why We Need Food
Technically food is unnecessary only when one expresses the full Song of the Self — the full nuances of self-expression. But that is a 'catch-22' (a dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions — "a catch-22 situation") because our purpose for being an individuated being with self-volition, is to gather a unique perspective. We need the blind spots in our perception to shape the unique lens through which we view life. The blind spots in our vision prevent the full self-expression that will render food unnecessary.
